Beauty Box 5 Review - May 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

This post contains affiliate links.

What is it? Beauty Box 5 
How Much? $12/month, $30/quarter, $99/year  plus $3 shipping per box 
What's in it? 5 samples from your favourite beauty brands 

It's Beauty Box 5 time again. I'm not sure when the box shipped, but it arrived on May 16th. I think it shipped around the 8th, so it didn't take too long to arrive.

First look

Product card

Harvey Prince Hello Perfume Sample 
Perfume samples are usually a miss for me but this one I don't mind. It has scents of lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, forsythia, and plumeria. 

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths (3 cloths,  $0.89)
These are cleansing wipes, but a bit thicker. I used one the other day after bike riding into work and I was really pleased with the results. They left my skin feeling clean and smelling fresh. 

H2O+ Aquaibrium Marine Cleansing Gel (8ml, $1.20)
This face wash is made with sea salt and energizing marine botanicals. I've enjoyed the H2O+ products I've tried before so I'm sure this will be the same.

MaskerAide Facial Sheet Mask in Beauty Rest'Ore (1 mask, $5.99)
How did this product from a Canadian company end up in a little subscription box based in Texas?! I love MaskerAide masks. I have quite a few left over from a Topbox purchase last year.

Cattiva Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner (0.35g, $20)
This is a slim, soft eyeliner pencil, similar to Stila's Smudge Stick. It's said to deliver smooth, smudge resistant lines. We shall soon find out!

The May Beauty Box 5 contained 5 products, valued at $28.08 (more if you count the perfume). I'm happy with the eyeliner and the sheet mask. The rest of the products are kind of "meh", but good to have and they will be used. This isn't the worst box I've received, but also not the best. I still think Beauty Box 5 is the best value box out there, you just have to be prepared to receive boxes like this one. Once in a while they hit it out of the park with something really amazing but I'd say this May box is most representative if what BB5 is all about.

What did you think of the May Beauty Box 5?
